Are you more of a Princess Leia or a Han Solo when it comes to your favorite tunes? If this is something you’ve wondered before, now there’s an answer. The latest thing to jump on the Star Wars celebration train is Spotify, which is doing the hard work for us and after a few easy questions, can tell us our very own Star Wars music match. If you’re big into instrumentalist scores, I’m telling you right now, you’re such a C-3PO.

Spotify’s new Star Wars match asks you to pick five artists from a list of them provided. They range from Beyoncé, to Areosmith, to Star Wars composer John Williams. After choosing five, you’ll blast off to tailored Spotify playlist for your corresponding character.

For me, the first time I did it, I did it for my own musical preferences. Being a big alternative rock fan, my music match is…. Padmé Amidala, which is not what I was expecting, mainly because she is not in Force Awakens. But clearly, just like Padmé, I’m a big fan of Power Pop, Neo Soul, and Funk (at least that’s the breakdown on the page as to how my match was determined).

What’s even better than simply being matched is the playlist that follows. It is (hilariously) spot on for the characters. Padmé‘s top power tunes? “Run the World (Girls)” by Beyonce, “Fighter” by Christina Aguilera, and “Independent Woman, Pt. 1” by Destiny’s Child. All of those things directly relate to her, and I can just see her running at the gym to this playlist.

But what about all the other Star Wars characters? What about their playlists? After playing around with Spotify, I think we should come to the general consensus that Princess Leia has the best playlist out there. Let’s take a second to LOL that her first song is “Love Is A Battlefield” and Ellie Goulding’s “Codes” makes its way in there, too. Because Leia’s always trying to get those Death Star codes.

If classic rock is more your thing, you and Han Solo will keep Creedence Clearwater Revival in heavy rotation in the Falcon.

Finn, meanwhile, enjoys indie rock more. It feels like these songs also clue us in just a little to his character (but no spoilers).

And then this one time I got Darth Maul and I was like, “….oh.”

Lando Calrissian makes an appearance, too, if you’re strictly slow jamming to R&B.

And though he might be fluent in over six million forms of communication, C-3PO likes his music without words.

If you’re ready to try this out yourself, head over to Spotify and prepare to be matched. Or, if you’d much rather rock out to Princess Leia’s playlist, check it out below. Happy listening!
